Snapdragon 830 chipset will be supported by Windows 10 Mobile?
Microsoft's minimum hardware requirements listing shows a new Qualcomm chipset that is supported by Windows 10 Mobile. The MSM 8998, believed to be the unannounced Snapdragon 830, is now mentioned as one of the Snapdragon chipsets that are supported for use on a Windows 10 Mobile handset.

The other Snapdragon models that will work with the platform include the MSM8994 (Snapdragon 810), MSM8992 (Snapdragon 808), MSM8952 (Snapdragon 617), MSM8909 (Snapdragon 210), MSM8208 (Snapdragon 208), MSM8996 (Snapdragon 820), MSM8953 (Snapdragon 625) and the MSM8998 (Snapdragon 830?). Since Qualcomm has yet to unveil the MSM8998, or the Snapdragon 830, we are not 100% sure what the MSM8998 is. We do know for sure that the SoC has been added to the list of chipsets that are supported by Windows 10 Mobile.

Qualcomm is looking to regain some of the momentum it lost last year when the Snapdragon 810 chipset suffered from bouts of overheating. Instead of continuing the ever growing number of cores, which reached eight with the Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm cut back to use four more powerful home-grown Kryo cores for the Snapdragon 820 chipset. Powering new flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S7 (in the U.S. and China), the LG G5 and the soon to launch HTC 10, so far there have been no known complaints about the SoC.

The current Windows 10 Mobile flagship phone, the Microsoft Lumia 950, is powered by the Snapdragon 808 chipset which includes a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU.
